What's an FTP Manager? How much efficient is it when it comes to maintaining an Internet site?
You can make use of separate FTP accounts to manage your website content if you’ve got several Internet sites in the exact same hosting account. You can grant different individuals access only to specific directories, for instance – web developers or IT professionals from the company, and be sure that they will not be able to connect to any other directories or anything else within the web hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. What’s more, you can create and administer several different websites at once using a web design application such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these apps make use of FTP to connect to the web server) and upload the site files both when you create them and when you update them. An important part of accomplishing these tasks is the option to create and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and easily.
